Reverse Graffiti

The artist Moose creates graffiti on walls not by adding paint, but by removing dirt. He's been doing this for a few years now and he originally just used a sock, water, and a bit of soap. In this video we can see that he's moved on up to using a pressure washer and stencils to create 140-foot murals. via Wooster Collective

graffiti and permanent posters

Hey all graffiti guys. My son and I are doing some poetry terrorism in our town. We were looking for quick ways of putting up poetry on public buildings. But we got an information windfall. Some guy in a pub told us that a poster put up with condensed milk could never be removed. Anyone ever hear of that?

Anti-Graffiti Coatings? Answered

Would any of the resident geniuses here at Instructables have any ideas for keeping graffiti off of my cedar fence? I live in a fairly rough neighborhood in a major urban center, and we exclusively have the bad type of graffiti-- crappy tags from juvenile delinquents delineating their turf. Any ideas on how to combat this problem with a DIY, cost-effective solution? I'm thinking it might just be something that most spraypaint won't stick to, or a surface that will destroy paint pens. Heat-sensing, motion-sensing automatic machine guns are not an option due to the rampant stray population ;)

Need help and ideas for graffiti

Inspired by the GRL i've thought of a cool idea for some graffiti:Overview:Using clear, or almost clear UV paint in 1 or 2 colors do a artsy stencil somewhere.then using a solar garden light, switch the LED for a UV and waterproof the wires and board somehow and find a way to attch so its hidden or out of reach.I would want to do this on the side of an overpass, perferably metal so i can use magnets to place things wherever i want. The panel would charge the singe rechargable AA (might mod to last longer) and then after it got dark enough the UV would show the work for a few hours untill it drained the battery.What i need help with:will paint like this ( ) be bright enough, any other suggestions for paint that won't be obvious unless its lit up.Will the UV LEDs be enough to see the art from a car driving below?any general mods or ideas to improve it?

I've been looking at some street art by a guy named BANKSY in the UK.  He often uses several colors in his spray stencils.  To achieve this, would I have to create more than one version of the stencil, and cut out the shape of stencil #1 in an inverted fashion of stencil #2?

Idea for Social Electronic Art

Hi everyone, I have been working on an idea for a new type of electronic creative art form. Social media has increasingly become cloud and computer-based, enabling people to network and share ideas and concepts online with others from around the world; this community is an excellent example of the power of electronics in fostering shared creativity. Art has always been an important aspect of society, bringing people together through the power of self-expression. In recent years, graffiti parks have become a popular method for communities to express themselves in a constructive way. In the area of electronics, circuitry and robotics have become increasingly accessible through open-source programs such as Arduino, enabling anyone to build complex and beautiful projects in their own garages (or anywhere!). This idea focuses on blending the social aspect of conventional art mediums with the untapped potential of electronic technology. One new technology in particular that has taken the first step towards merging the different fields of creativity is conductive ink and paint, created by Bare Conductive. This graphene-based material enables users to paint circuits and electrical systems onto most surfaces, opening up the entire world as a building area. Essentially, this is the focus of the idea- creative communities making the world their canvas through the power of conductive ink and open-source electronics tools. Imagine the possibilites! Walls covered with lights that can be activated by touching a drawn image, buildings covered with playable arcade games and interactive media, and childrens' parks with community-sourced learning tools on the play area! Of course, there's another aspect here; the social possibilities. See a circuit that someone didn't ever finish, or a piece of electronic art that you wanted to expand? Whip out your Arduino kit and ink bottle, and draw it in! Every wall would tell a story, and it would never stop growing. Our imaginations would be the only limit... What does everyone think of this idea? Let me know any thoughts or input you might have!

What type of solar cell/battery for a garden lamp?

I was looking at an instructable ( involving a garden light hooked up to a red led instead of a white one. It shoots a picture out at night onto a wall or something like that.I'm wondering if the garden lights are too dim or don't charge fully. We used to have some lights of those type, but they would make a dim light for about 5 hours, then emit a very very weak light. I'm thinking about just buying a trickle charger from here, then getting a bright green or blue led, batteries, and waterproofing it. The problem is, I have nil knowledge about solar chargers/what voltage to use.Can anyone help?

Hey guys I have been following GRL ever sense I got into technological graffiti and graffiti that is not permanent and doesn't cause damage to a building. Unfortunately this started during this last summer. The reason this is unfortunate is because nothing on the main GRL page has been updated since that time. I am curious does anyone know if GRL is still up and running if so please and not trying to be rude, but come on guys and post something up!! It's been I think almost 6 maybe more months since their last post and it's getting aggravating.

Guerilla Knitting

There is a lot more knitting out there beyond the standard stitching that is crazy and wild and even a bit subversive. Some of it is called knit graffiti like at and some of it just likes to be more playful and make bizarre and fun new objects. In San Francisco there was a guy who would wrap abandoned bikes and bike locks with thick and chunky yarn. It was a beautiful way to reclaim what was a pretty grim reminder that bike theft is prevalent here.I may not be compelled to learn how to cast on and make some stuff of my own, but you have to respect the people who feel compelled to take the craft and keep on running with it.To find out more, check out this article on to read some history, watch a video discussing current issues, and see some cool examples of the styles.
